This post updated August 2021 to reflect the new packaging – the product remains unchanged.
For the longest time I thought this would be the first Field Roast product I’d have to rate negatively. Try as I might I just wasn’t able to fall in love with these small corn dog bites. Given my otherwise fanatical love for all things Field Roast, and numerously positive online reviews this had me puzzled. Then the magic happened…
One evening while cooking dinner in the oven, I thought I’d finish off an otherwise disappointing bag of these corn dogs. I threw the remaining handful of bites I had left over into the oven – waste not want not. I’d cooked the majority of the bag using just the microwave and I’d been disappointed by their uneven texture and taste.
And wow, what a fortuoiutois decision that was, the little nuggets were a complete revelation. I can’t recall the last time a product was so dramatically altered by switching up the cooking method. Baked in the oven the corn dogs had a consistent textural finish, a crisp sizzling exterior and soft yielding interior. For reference the faux hot dog interior is essentially the Field Roast Frankfurter.
So if you find yourself with a bag of these, don’t make my lazy mistake. Get some ketchup and quality mustard to hand, bake them up in the oven, and eat them sizzling hot.

Its entirely possible I had such bad luck with the microwave cooking option due to my own poor microwave. That said, I can’t encourage you enough to cook these in the oven. You’ll undoubtedly be rewarded with a superior texture and taste:
Field Roast Miniature Corn Dogs – what’s a fair price
I paid $7.99 for these corn dogs at a local Whole Foods. Frankly I think that price is far too high, even after cooking in the oven. I’m not sure why they’re priced at this premium level, which is around double what Morningstar Farms price their own veggie corn dogs at. I think the $5 mark is a ceiling for what’s a fair price.
Are Field Roast Miniature Corn Dogs any good?
Yes, albeit with one important caveat: be sure to cook these in the oven. Out of the microwave these corn dog bites can be unimpressive and uneven. Sizzling hot out of the oven and into some zesty mustard though they’re a really fun snack!
